Plastic surgery has gained mainstream acceptance all over the country and the world, but the challenge remains: finding an experienced, qualified, and trustworthy doctor. This is one area where you don’t want to make a casual decision.
People who don’t live in Los Angeles may jest about the high number of plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills and Southern California. These observations aren’t wrong, but unless you’re from the area, you may not realize that the sheer volume of plastic surgeons also ensures stronger competition. When so many rivals crowd the marketplace, a specialist in cosmetic surgery must distinguish him- or herself in some way. As a discerning patient, you’ll want a plastic surgeon with exemplary medical skills, scientific knowledge, and impeccable patient care. All these areas receive extra attention from Dr. Jay Calvert, as apparent in his own words and philosophy: “My goal is to develop a treatment plan designed to help each individual achieve their aesthetic goals safely and effectively.”
If you demand the absolute best, you should accept no less than the talents of Dr. Jay Calvert. Board-certified, Ivy League-educated, and internationally recognized as an expert in revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Calvert specializes in primary and revision rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and face-lifts for patients in the Beverly Hills and Newport Beach areas and beyond.
Mastery in Revision Rhinoplasty
With the normalizing of plastic surgery, it’s no surprise that revision procedures, known also as secondary procedures, have risen in popularity, too. Patients seek secondary surgery for many reasons: because of surgical complications, for aesthetic adjustments, or to make other corrections. This is one area where Dr. Calvert has distinguished himself, particularly with secondary rhinoplasty. Other surgeons routinely refer their patients to Dr. Calvert for this highly technical and specialized operation. Dr. Calvert’s mastery of the necessary advanced techniques helps patients see the best possible results, but that’s not the end of the story. Clients can also expect compassion and care from the doctor and his staff in advance of the operation itself. This combination of scientific savvy and emotional acumen add up to the optimal surgical experience.
Breast Augmentation Artistry
Dr. Calvert has also amassed extensive experience with breast augmentation surgery, a popular operation that’s also reaching everyday status. In keeping with the doctor’s philosophy of addressing the patient’s aesthetic concerns in a safe and effective manner, it all starts with an individual consultation. This meeting allows the client to explore her goals for the surgery: for improved confidence and self-esteem, for a more pleasing figure, or, as commonly cited among actors and performers, for career opportunities. Whatever the reason, the patient’s safety, health, and aesthetic preferences remain the top priorities. Dr. Calvert can fill in the blanks and resolve other questions, such as those concerning implant placement and surgical approaches, as well as size, in the private meeting.

As Dr. Calvert states, “I strive to produce an enhanced, natural look by balancing the capabilities of the surgical techniques with the woman’s desires. Since each woman is unique, each operation must be tailored to produce the best possible outcome for each patient.”
Best Face Forward
Patients seeking face-lifts and brow lifts will be pleased to learn that not only does Dr. Calvert perform these procedures, but that he employs a minimally invasive technique made possible by the use of an endoscope. In fact, Dr. Calvert attended one of the earliest endoscopic plastic surgery workshops in 1993 while he was in medical school. Following this early introduction, Dr. Calvert has incorporated the endoscope into his every day operations. As a result, patients can expect minimal incisions, faster recovery times, and of course, maximum results from the face-lifts and brow lifts administered by Dr. Calvert. In the same manner the doctor takes individual circumstances into account with rhinoplasty and breast augmentation requests, he will construct a personal plan for each patient undergoing facial rejuvenation. The client’s goals, anatomy, and life path will be taken into account before committing to the surgical program.
Dr. Calvert covers even more procedures in his practice, including eyelid tucks, tummy tucks, and arm tucks; neck lifts, breast lifts, and thigh lifts; and liposuction. On a related note, the doctor commonly performs lipoaugmentation (fat transfer) for lip augmentation. He also uses lipoaugmentation to fill out nasolabial folds after rhinoplasty and sculpt facial tissues after a face-lift. See Before and After examples here…
Patients who’ve undergone bariatric surgery often require follow-up plastic surgery to deal with excess skin from the major weight loss. Dr. Calvert has performed many body lifts and other operations for such patients. He remains involved with bariatric support groups and with the weight loss population. Working with teams of plastic surgeons, he aims to cut down on operating times and, thus, the risk factor of these critical operations.

Credentials and Experience
Dr. Calvert backs up his words and deeds with a long history of elite training, top-notch credentials, and professional memberships. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, with the mission of promoting safe, ethical, efficacious plastic surgery by maintaining high standards for the education, examination, certification, and recertification of plastic surgeons as specialists and subspecialists. To gain board certification, plastic surgeons must complete an approved residency training program and pass comprehensive written and oral exams.
He counts membership in several professional organizations, among them as a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a scientific and educational association dedicated to improving the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice. Dr. Calvert is also a part of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Rhinoplasty Society, the American Medical Association, the California Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Plastic Surgery Research Council, and the Los Angeles Society of Plastic Surgeons. His reach and reputation extend around the world, as he’s invited to present his breakthroughs to other specialists at medical conferences.
Going further back, Dr. Calvert earned a B.A. in molecular biology at Vanderbilt University (aka the Harvard of the South), then traveled north to the original Ivy League to gain his medical degree at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Dr. Calvert’s postgraduate training and residency took place at the University of Pittsburgh, where he completed the highly competitive “combined” training program for general and plastic surgery. Through a combination of academic rigor and consistent exposure to complex surgical cases, he was trained to be the highest-quality aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Calvert remains active in the academic community, with a continuing position as Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Southern California. He has published a long list of academic articles as well.
In addition to his academic achievements, Dr. Calvert put in extra time to hone his skills and to reach out to the medical community. At Cornell, he won the Gustave Award for excellence in anatomy, and at Pittsburgh, he was a grant reviewer for the Pittsburgh Tissue Engineering Society. Throughout his academic and professional career, Dr. Calvert has actively pursued research opportunities, particularly with bone grafts and tissue construct — gaining knowledge that would serve him well in his practice.
